An Ode To Spring
I look at all the flowers, eager to please
The attentive eyes.
They come in red, green, purple, and blue.
The pollen falls like snow from the trees
Covering everything in a yellowish hue.
And as I see, I cry
Tears of irritation, and I know I will sneeze.
I wrote this years ago and used it as a signature on a message board; I don’t know why I didn’t share it here before now. 😄 The rhyming pattern is a little different than most things I’ve written, but it was fun to do. 🙂 This is for all of the allergy sufferers out there.
The flowers in the top photo aren’t mine; they were at a local nursery, and I thought that they were so pretty! ❤ You can see more allergy season poetry and more flower photos from that outing last year here. (Yes this has been in my drafts since last year. XD)
This is the pollen index for my state at the beginning of the week. Sadly, it’s at 10.1 where I live. Crazy high. I’m coughing constantly, having drainage, sneezing, my throat is sore… it’s almost like having a cold without the feeling awful part. I think it’s actually trees, not flowers I’m allergic to. But I’m not 100% sure. Whatever it is, I hope the pollen stuff is gone soon. XD
